Life lately.....

So.... Today would be day 5 at my temp position with Wells Fargo, although I did call in sick because I'm not feeling well. Some days it just sucks to be a girl.... The job is going well and there will probably be an opportunity for me to be hired on full time at the end of my temping, although I'm not sure that's something I'm really wanting to do. If I can't find anything closer to home in the meantime, then I guess I'll be taking it. Maybe down the road I'll be able to transfer closer to home, who knows. I'll be starting my training this week to get me acclamated to all the new things I'll be doing. I'm a bit nervous, but hopefully I'll catch on quick. I guess the main thing is that I feel like I'm totally doing something that I don't want to do, but I don't have much choice at the moment.... Bills are stacking up like crazy and I don't have any idea of when I'll be getting my money from my jerk ex-boss. I called today and he had absolutely no care in the world that he hasn't payed me, nor has no idea of when he'll have a check for me. I got pretty rude with him, but not nearly enough.... I wanna just scream because I feel so fucked and he doesn't even care. I can't pay my bills, the electricity's already been shut off once and we owe 2000 to just the electric company and I can't pay it, so I just keep calling asking them to put it off for a bit longer but I don't know how long they'll keep doing that..... I just feel really overwhelmed and stressed..... I don't know how much more I can take. I feel like I can't breath. I just want things to go back to normal and not have to worry about how I'm going to pay the next bill.

K, sorry, got off on a tangent there.... I'm just ready for things to get better.... I haven't been able to get on the computer much with all of my working and commuting, so I'm going through withdrawls of SJ and MySpace... Plus I'm not having much time to do things that I want to do, let alone keep on top of the house. Life's just been crazy..... :o(

My first day

I'm a cube dweller once again.... It went okay, a little long, but it's gonna take me a while to get back into the routine. I'll probably start my training in the next week or so, once things slow down (the mortgage business gets crazy busy at the end of the month, trying to close as much as possible and meet all deadlines). Until then, I'm doing little busy work - verifying employement, sending disclosure packages and routing all faxes (there's actually a guy that his entire job is to maintain all the incoming faxes!!)....

I like everyone so far, they all seem very nice and very welcoming. My new team is very excited to have me - they're inundated with loans and can't wait until I'm trained and begin underwritting loans as well. I'm nervous because it's something new, but in the same, I'm kinda excited. Still not excited about the commute - just over an hour each way today. Friday will be the worst getting home. But, the position seems like it has potential to be permanent - I'm replacing a lady that went out on maternity leave and she'll be returning in November but not returning to this team. Not sure why, I didn't ask. So it seems that they're needing someone full time and permanent, which is definitely a good thing. I just need to ask myself if I really want to commit to commuting again. I did it for 3 years and it really wears on you, your car, your time with your loved ones..... I don't know if I can handle all that stress again.

But, the bills are getting scary and I can't see the light at the end of this tunnel yet.... I'm looking forward to that day. This is just a mere step towards that light. We've got a long ways to go....

Just a couple more

Forgot to include one, and then I got 2 more pages done today. Was on quite a roll. Love having the time to scrap!

I've been scrappin, again!!

With this downtime, I've been able to get in my room and get some things done. I've decided to take a test-run on some cards and post them on ebay and see what happens. Hopefully I'll be able to make a little money there. Have yet to post them, so I need to get on the ball. Anyways, just wanted to post some of the layouts I've gotten done over the last week. Went and cropped with Toni and got 4 pages done that night, then 2 in the last 2 days, plus lots of cards! Wooohooo!!!

Update, finally!

Heard from the temp agency I applied with last Thursday. They've gotten the approval to place me with Wells Fargo down in Carlsbad. They're just waiting on my background check to come in. Having mixed feelings about this placement as I've interviewed with WF myself a couple years ago and was not too pleased with the situation I was approached with. Hopefully things will be different this time around. Either way, I'm taking it because we need the money and I'll just continue to look for something closer to home in the meantime.

Still sick. Nasty. Tired. Coughing. Headache. We went to Mom's yesterday to hang out and I ended up with a monster headache half way through the day. Had to sleep it off in mom's room. I felt so bad, but what can you do? And my Johnny took a little nap with me, which is always nice. Poor thing though, he ended up sick by the end of the night with some sort of stomach thing and after dropping my sister off at home, he had to lay down in the back seat for the rest of the drive home. I can't wait till we're both back to 100%. I just hate being sick.

I've been trying to be constructive with my time off. I've managed to do some of the deep cleaning that my house so desperately needed. Steamed the carpets, getting caught up on the laundry. And, I even managed to scrap with Toni last Friday night, which was tons of fun. I'll have to do that more often with her, she's a hoot and such a great person to be around.

Thats about it. Gotta get back to my cleaning. I"ll be sure to keep everyone updated on the job dealie as I find out more.

The last of 'em

This is the last of the pics from my Michigan trip. These are of Ruthann and I as we wandered around Grand Rapids. I loved these little statues. Apparantly it was a special feature and there were 13 of them placed throughout downtown for you to find. We found maybe 5 of 6 of them, but this was by far the cutest!! Oh, and the picture of Ruthann, lol!! We came across this big button and she thought it was moveable, so I caught her trying to spin it :p And the last picture is of the best ever deep dish Chicago pizza place.... so if you're in Chicago, you've gotta stop there and get a pizza! I'm drooling just thinking about it.... Ruthann even loved it and she's not a big pizza fan. That says something, right there!!
